Lemon Meringue Sangria

Some of you may have noticed that we have been MIA for about 2 weeks but don’t worry, we weren’t slacking LOL! Just working on perfecting some great drink options for all of your summer party needs!

Lemon Meringue Sangria

 

The first recipe I want to share with you is from what I served at my very own 29th birthday party for Memorial Day weekend. I know that that was over 2 weeks ago but sometimes its hard to create original sangria recipes, host parties, and blog while still living my normal life LOL #firstworldproblems…

 

I wanted to create something that would serve a lot of people in a glass beverage dispenser with a spout. I knew I wanted to work with lemons since they would be a fruit that people would like to taste without actually eating (since the dispenser had a screwed on lid). I also knew that I wanted this sangria to be strong, sweet, and a little bit sour just like a lemon itself. I chose to go with whipped cream vodka because I thought it would add a creamy sweetness. I think the overall response to this sangria was positive. Some people said it tasted like a sweet/tart candy while others thought it tasted like the lemon version of a creamsicle. (Oooh, orange creamsicle sangria might be AWESOMEEE!)

Lemon Meringue Sangria Ingredients

I liked this sangria a lot, I thought it was perfect for a summer day, great to be served in this type of container, and generally something a lot of people enjoyed. It was a perfect choice for an outdoor summer party. I think I set out to create what I had planned, something with bold flavor that was both very sweet and very tart.
